and future can learn from it. >>> t-minus two days until president obama makes history again. on sunday, he'll be sworn in for a second term in the highest office in the land. but did you know obama will become the second president ever to take the oath of office four times? yeah. that's right. steve kornacki told me that. in 2009, he took it twice after chief justice roberts botched it the first time. good job, john. the president will again the lay hand on the bible, january 20th required by the constitution but since it's a sunday, the parades, balls and public swearing in, the fourth oath, pushed until monday the mlk holiday. such poetic justice, that. don't expect the record turnout of 2009. a new poll shows fewer americans like president obama right now and his policies versus 2009. only 43% are optimistic about the next four years but his job approval rating still tops 50%. only two presidents after world war ii scored higher approval ratings in the second term and president obama's already on track to join them. let's start with nbc's kristin welker outside the white
